    Rocket doesnt seem to ike snow very much, he is anxious going outside to toilet alone but his usual 8:30 like clockwork poo didnt put in an appearance til 3 today. This included a short walk round the block and many trips round the garden. Eventually once I cleared him an area he was fine, seems he didnt want to squat on snow. He is being called Princess by the kids now.

    It must be terribly cold for them! He is managing a few mins in the garden, if the snow is actually coming down then he is getting proper zoomies, my 8yr old puppy!

    For the first couple of years, Jasper didn't seem that interested in snow, but when he was about three he changed his mind and liked making 'snow angels'. This photo makes me laugh because you can hardly tell which end is which and it looks like his head is missing:D

    That may well have been the last time we had a decent covering of snow. I'm hoping I can update tomorrow...

    Misty absolutely loves it. She has no issues with squatting on it, we’ve got little yellow patches all over the snowy garden!

    I’m having trouble with Molly’s pads getting balls of snow in them, trimmed the hair but not doing much good! Only her front ones though, she’ll run about then stop and put her paw up so I can free off the snow, doesn’t affect Lily the terrier, just the Springer. She’s now getting wary of the snow and trying to walk on bits where the snow has melted. Actually took a flask of warm water with me this morning to pour on her pads as couldn’t get the balls of ice off . People must have thought I was daft !:D:D

    We actually have snow!!!!

    I got all togged up in coat, hat, scarf, gloves etc. to go out, but Jasper declined a walk. I asked him if he'd like to play in the garden and he said 'Woo hoo! Yeah!!!' Why is the snow in the garden more acceptable than snow out the front of the house?

    So far we've only had a little snow and Jimmy mostly carries on as if it wasn't there. I really want to see what he'd be like in snow if we had a decent covering.

    It's snowing constantly here but not really settling. Really powdery snow! Kay loves it, I'll make a thread for all of her snow photos another day ;) IMG_2569.JPG

    OK, we now have about 3" of snow and it's still falling! :eek: I just let Jimmy off the lead in the back garden and he didn't know what to make of it. He ran around a bit, then I was a bit cruel as I acted like I had a treat in my hand when it was just a clump of snow. I threw it into the air and he went to catch it, and ooomph, all over his chops :D:D:D After a bit more running around, he then started barking at it coming from the sky. How dare it land on his garden!

    "Right, if you're gonna chuck snow around, I'm off indoors....."
